Once you’ve installed the site on BlueHost if it wasn’t set up with the SSL certificate you can update the URL using the Really Simple SSL plugin from the WordPress.org repository here:

https://wordpress.org/plugins/really-simple-ssl/

The plugin will work with your SSL certificate to ensure anyone visiting the site will have the padlock icon next to your URL which confirms the site is secure and using https.

For setting up this site we will be using the Astra theme found here:

https://wordpress.org/themes/astra/

As well as the Beaver Builder page builder to help customize it. If you use a different theme then you may have different customization options available to you. Design the site how you would like it to display for your visitors, with the Astra theme and Beaver Builder you can create almost any design you’re looking to add to your site.

With the site set up, you will want to install MemberPress to set up your site to become a membership site. The video will walk you through the different customization steps involved and you can find Memberpress here:

    Are there any membership plug-ins that allow you to create a relationship between users and capture custom information. For example a parent child relationship and you can capture certain information for the parent and certain information for the child.

    Hi, excellent tut and so well done… thank you… I already have my site, does my site have to be a dedicated membership site? Can I not just have a separate page fir membership?

  • Ant Brad on March 4, 2020

    Thanks so much for your prompt response… I love your site and of course your tutorials are so good! Step by step 100% – I'm wondering if you have a tutorial on how to add a "Comments Section" to my WP Site so visitors can interact with each other? Something similar to facebook comments (but of course not the whole facebook thing going on… just an open comments section so people can get involved in discussions
